I purchased a certified used car from ira Toyota and since I've owned it 4 things have never worked: 1. the seat belts always stick and have been replaced and still do not work. 2. the driver's seat does not move forward and back. The dealer looked at it more than twice and still will not fix it. 3. the steering wheel does not turn smoothly and the dealer does not know why. 4. the vehicle continuously turns to the left, even after all new, superior wheels and tires, new struts and two front end alignments. The dealer: Ira Toyota could find nothing wrong.
